200 Free Sterilizations on San Cristobal Island

Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, loyal donors and supporters, and local collaborators, World Vets wrapped up another successful veterinary campaign in the Galapagos Islands this month.  Through facilitation with local government agency ABG (Agencia de Regulación y Control de la Bioseguridad para Galápagos), the municipality of San Cristobal (GAD Municipal de San Cristóbal), and local partner Animal Balance, World Vets sterilized 200 dogs and cats on the island of San Cristobal. Besides spays and neuters, the volunteer veterinary team performed several life-saving surgeries and essential procedures and completed countless health consultations and treatments. All services were offered free of charge to resident pet owners in an effort to benefit small animal health, control dog and cat populations, and protect local wildlife in the region.
